CLEVELAND --  The Cleveland Animal Protective League is looking for homes for dozens of rabbits after the animals were rescued from a Cleveland home.

APL investigators were alerted to the home where 92 rabbits were living in over-crowded and filthy outdoor hutches.  Investigators say they found the rabbits in cages with little or no ventilation and without food or water.

Hutches meant to hold two to four rabbits were instead housing 18 to 25 rabbits. The animals were described as emaciated and several were hurt as a result of the living conditions according to the APL.

The animals were brought to the shelter where they were given food, water and medical care.  The APL says 50 of the rabbits are now available for adoption.  The others are being cared for while they recover from the living conditions they endured.

All rabbits are spayed or neutered, come with helpful species-specific animal care information, and a free initial veterinary exam.

All adoptable animals can be seen at www.ClevelandAPL.org. Call (216) 771- 4616, ext. 0 if you have any questions about any of the animals or about adoptions.
